TurnItIn - Plagiarism Detection

Turnitin is a plagiarism detection service that integrates with Canvas. The OriginalityCheck compares student papers to Turnitin's content database to determine the percentage of unoriginal content in the paper.  It allows instructors and students to easily determine any problems in citation or referencing and assists instructors in determining the originality of a submitted work.  The Originality Report is a flexible document that allows students and instructors to review matches between a submitted work and the databased scanned by Turnitin.  Citations, quotations, and bibliographic material are all scanned to determine an overall similarity percentage as well as specific matches to similar text.
